Many e-mail and Internet companies are now using programs to block unwanted e-mail, often called spam. Sometimes, however, these programs also might block e-mail you actually want to get.
To Make Sure You’re Receiving Your Emails from Me Do The Following:
Be sure to add the info@LawrenceTam.com email addresses to your email white list. That way you will receive our emails with our content and updates!
A whitelist is a list of accepted items or persons in a list…. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this so important?
Unsolicited, unwanted advertising e-mail, commonly known as “spam”, has become a big problem. It’s reached such proportions that most e-mail services and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have put some sort of blocking or filtering system in place or begun relying on self-proclaimed blacklists to tell the good guys from the bad.
But everyone agrees that the current systems for stopping spam are far from a perfect solution. They often block e-mail that you actually want, but that fits somebody’s idea of what spam looks like. The more responsible anti-spam activists are working hard to cut down on these “false positives”, but in the mean time, you might unexpectedly find you’re not getting our emails…
As it happens, there’s something you can do to keep your email content from falling into the false positive trap. You can fight the blacklists with a “white-list”.
White-list us now, before your delivery is interrupted.
Of course, every e-mail system is different. Below are instructions for some of the more popular ones. If yours isn’t here, please contact your ISP’s customer service folks for their instructions. (Forward the answer to us, and we might add it!)
If you’re using some sort of spam filtering or blocking software yourself (in addition to what your ISP provides), we’ve also listed instructions on how to exempt your subscription from some of the more popular of those programs.
